>Windows is installing updates
>20 minutes later it's good to go
>"We've removed Speccy from your PC since it doesn't work with this version of Windows"
The reason it removed it was because it was known to have an old version of CPU-Z that was broken and causing BSOD.
Install an up to date version, protip: speccy fixed the issue and released an update.
>Evil guy install software on your computer that allows him to do more or less anything he wants with it
>Comes pre-installed with software that lets microsoft do anything they want with it, e.g., uninstall programs they don't like
You're right. The difference is that windows comes pre-packaged with the bot software. Us normal folk have to go on the internet and get infected manually.
>it's not shit if I just add enough hotsauce to it!
This is dumb though it shouldn't remove any of my programs in my computer for any stupid reason
Speccy worked fine and it just magically says it doesn't work so it removes it without my permission?
Eula's have been thrown out in so many courts because it violates peoples rights as well as being unreasonably long or complicated to understand
Eula's have no legal binding what so ever. All those Eula's saying you can't form a class action suit are all void
>An End User License Agreement (EULA) is a legal contract between a software application author or publisher and the user of that application.
What the fuck are you on?
Speccy didn't work fine though. It was rare, but it caused BSODs. I had one myself several months back, which was the first BSOD I'd seen in years. It was just after upgrading my GPU as well (when I opened Speccy to take a new screenshot), so I thought that was fucked.
You accepted their terms and condiditons
You are using their intellectual property
Buying a copy of Windows you did not buy their software design or core settings
You are liable to follow the legal contract.
Not in Europe. EULAs have been proven time and again to mean jack shit in court, whether you agree to them or not.
but this is the wrong approach... I'd understand a message indicating to review the log for conflicting/outdated software but let the user have the final say on whether the software is removed or not.
Eula is actually in most cases enforsable
